There will be stalls with bottles and baking to buy with drinks from the café.

Visitors can also bring their own bottles to celebrate with the nation. And everyone will receive a special cup-cake to mark the occasion made by local baker Heather McNeish’s “A Cake Occasion” business.

There will also be fun and games for children who will be able to be crowned themselves on a special throne and get a special scroll for doing so from the Carrick Centre.
